Anthony Joshua knocks somebody’s head off and Eddie Hearn ashes a cigar onto a tongue.
No it’s not behind the scenes at Matchroom HQ – it’s Riyadh Season’s promotional effort for the bumper Day of Reckoning fight card.
Meanwhile a reanimated Deontay Wilder drives a wailing zombie Frank Warren around a desolate city. Joseph Parker, Dmitry Bivol and Otto Wallin all feature as the walking dead, too.
It’s the latest piece of marketing from the minds that brought us the fantastic fight trailer for Tyson Fury versus Francis Ngannou, this time showcasing an event that features some of the biggest names in the sport, even if, in a perfect world, the fans would like to tinker with the match-ups.
The #DayOfReckoning trailer is one you MUST watch! 👀

The action goes down on December 23, when Joshua and Wilder aim to set up a fight of their own by beating Wallin and Parker respectively.
Daniel Dubois goes toe-to-toe with Jarrell Miller, although neither feature in the apocalyptic world, as well as Bivol putting his light-heavyweight world title on the line against Lyndon Arthur, Jai Opetaia facing Ellis Zorro, Frank Sanchez against Junior Fa, Arslanbek Makhmudov versus Agit Kabayel and, finally, Filip Hrgovic fighting Mark De Mori out of left field.
The event sees promoters Hearn and Warren working closely for the first time, as well as a host of other big business names from the sport. It will be available worldwide on DAZN PPV, and is also available through TNT Sports Box Office in the UK.
